Samuel Barber: Adagio for Strings; Violin Concerto; Knoxville: Summer 1915 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This was recommended by my son - Adagio was in the movie, Elephant Man, sound track and he asked all on FB friend list to play this at his memorial. My thought was "I never want to see the day he passes" SO I sent it to him to enjoy while we are still on this earth. Upon receiving the cd, he called from his vehicle at the PO parking lot as he listened to the beautiful symphony. I'll eventually purchase one for myself. Beautiful music!
